Re: Up and Coming Programs in NCAA Football 09

umm good stuff...but i am confused as to how you cannot consider tennessee a powerhouse...during the 90's tennessee was one of the premiere programs in the nation..the only team consistantly better or equal to UT was flordia in the sec.. Tennessee was perenially ranked in the top 5 every year from 1992 to 2001..and despite the minor slip up in 2005 (which dosent exist..)...in the past 20 yrs UT has finish the season outside the top 20 3 times and top 25 twice.....and..add 3 SEC championship appearances since 2000 and u have a damn good program..i gar.un.tee that if u put any of those other teams in the SEC they would loose double the games they have lost over the past 2 seasons...at least...yes that includes USC....and dont EVEN get me started on Ohio State..LAWL they may have the MOst overrated program in the entire nation..not becasue there bad but because Espn sucks up to tressel and his "unbeatable sweater vest" more than a dust buster.. i think the SEC in general shut them up pretty good over the past 2 years..lol and ND..lol they havent won a NC since the Jeffersons were tryin to move on up..and last year...need i say more??..man Nebraska i will give ya..course noone was better than them in 1995-97..and if i recall correctly UT beat Mami in THEIR house in 03.. during their Hay day... i do remember kellen winslow b******* about it ALOT>>>..but yeah..and OKlahoma.....umm yeah your right they the best team in college...durng WW2 and in the 50's and 60's...we arent talkin bout teams that our great grandparents played on we are taling over the past 20 years or so..and i promise if you look up the most dominat teams and coaches over the past 20 years..Big Phil is up @ the top of that list....not bashing or saying ur opinion is wrong but..check up on ur teams and stats b4 making statements.....u cant have a full house of 109,000 and 107,000 avg. EVERY YEAR>> and not be a "powerhouse"

Remember the name CJ Spiller. If you've never watched a Clemson game you do not want to miss watching one this year. I'm a Tarheel fan but Spiller is my favorite player this year.

What? Tennessee not a powerhouse? That is an uninformed statement.
Here's something to think about:
-More SEC Championship appearances than any SEC team over the last 10 years
-since '96, a nation's best 69 players selected in the NFL draft
-Fulmer's record 147-45; 5th fastest coach in ncaa history to 100 wins
-'94-'98 record 53-9- if that's not a perrenial powerhouse BEFORE winning it all then there is no such thing as a perrenial powerhouse

I think you will see State in that category next year, they are bringing in a top 10 recruiting class and with the addition of Keith Nicol from Oklahoma they should be in great shape.

If Tennessee is a perrenial powerhouse, then Auburn has to be considered one. And I haven't heard many people call either one a perennial powerhouse. Speaking of, could Auburn be on this list?

Auburn isn't quite there yet. Tommy's record is only 80-33 at AU.

I think people fudge the term powerhouse. Teams have 5-7 good years and suddenly think they are powerhouses. That is when you get teams like A&M and Arkansas firing coaches after 9 or 10 win seasons, a lot of teams have an over-inflated view of the value of their program. True Powerhouses have had success over multiple decades during the modern era of college football (last 60 years or so), which includes national championships over those years. You can have a really good program (Tenn, Auburn) that isn't a powerhouse and you can have a powerhouse (Alabama) that falls on hard times and becomes a really good program in the minds of recruits for awhile.

I'm rambling here, but it's something I'd love for EA to touch on in Dynasty mode.
